Warrior Girl Music eNews
a little bit of gilli moon monthly in your inbox
G'day peaceful warriors, gilli moon here.
Hot off the press: If you're in Wollombi 4pm today, hop on down to the Cultural Centre for the Art Exhibit. Details below!
Did you know I've been sending out this newsletter, on a monthly basis, for 12 years, month in month out? Wow! That's 144 editions, give or take a few. Just goes to show the longevity of an Artist Owned Record Label, like mine. Warrior Girl Music was born in the year 2000 and since then we've released 6 albums for me, 3 albums for other artists, 4 compilations (Females On Fire series, and Art of Men), and 11, soon to be 12, Songsalive! CD Samplers (promoting songwriters); Plus produced 10 artist albums, and copious Album art. Not to mention 2 books, several world tours, a songwriters expo, a women's music festival, and coaching hundreds of artists globally in their careers.
It's good to take stock of the successes, don't you think?
I remember when the word "indie artist" was very new, and I was one of those artists. It's a fine achievement to be one of those who've helped pave the way to now what is seen as 'normal'. Back when I started, it was very avant garde, and even poo pood, to go outside major label seeking route. "Do it yourself? You've got to be kidding," they would say. Well, here I am, and here I STILL am.
About to do: Art exhibitions on both sides of the Pacific starting today; Radio Play in Japan; A request for help in our Grant seeking for Skillz; Songwriting workshops; A summer gig; and my new blog, "How much are you worth?"; Also, promoting a few things for artists below too.
Hope you enjoy my eNews! For all the Mothers out there, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.
Something a little different for gilli moon,... I'm exhibiting my art simultaneously on both sides of the Pacific, in the USA and in Australia.
Wollombi, NSW, Australia: My art is part of an exhibit of local artists, "Home Grown Art", starting today Saturday May 12 (opening) through to Sunday May 27th. I wish I was there personally. If you go, let me know. I do believe there will be wine and cheese, etc, at the opening this Saturday.
And in North Hollywood, CA, USA,
"Women!" - NoHo Gallery LA exhibition is still running until May 27th.
Also featured will be over a dozen historic images relating to women's issues such as: Our Founding Religious Patriarch fathers burning women at the stake juxtaposed by Darrly Issa's Congressional Committee of all religious male patriarchs testifying about invading women's reproductive rights.

in the media
Gilli Moon writes a no-holds-barred portrayal of the trials of being a successful artist in a world of global commerce, instant interconnectivity, and even shorter attention spans in this Youtube generation. Still, she manages to keep the reader from feeling overwhelmed with a just-do-it attitude and the kind of confidence that can push a mouse to tame a lion. You won't hear anything cliche from Gilli, either. She's all about the reality of the music world. Just Get Out There is the most insightful book on the industry today, and a prime tool for anyone seeking success in the arts, or success in finding themselves....I make no exaggeration to say that it's the best book on the industry I've read. - James Rushin, Music Gear Review

Album - THE STILLNESS
by gilli moon
"Prepare to enter the stillness of gilli moon, where the only thing moved is the listener... Life is like a drug for gilli moon, and the passion that courses through the veins of ‘the stillness’ is the same life-blood that created the pyramids, brought humankind to outer-space and fathomed individual expression through the arts. Simply stated, Ms. moon has tapped into Maya, and is here to share it with all who are open and receptive.”

How much are you worth?
I remember when I only had $600 in my bank account and I felt wealthy and abundant because I didn't owe anyone any money. Being rich is not necessarily about money.
Do you feel wealthy? Have you ever thought about how much you are worth?
Don't buy into the buzz that you have to lack, or that you are just one of the minions that must go without due to the 'economic crisis'. Believe in your self and your WORTH.
Have you see this yet?,... a little bit of FUN!
